If you read my post about dealing with postpartum you know I had to go on yucky meds to help! I was on Effexor for about 10 months when my Dr decided it would be safe to wean me down and off of them. The wean down process went well with no side effects until the last week when I started 1 day on and 1 day off on the most minimal dose. By the end of the first day off I was feeling HORRIBLE! Dizzy, chills, tingly lips, fogginess and my brain and head felt in a way I cant even explain. I started researching Effexor withdraw and what I was feeling was described as Brain Zaps! What the heck!
As soon as I took a pill the next day the symptoms subsided pretty quickly but then the next day off was worse than the 1st day off. By the 3rd day.. Holy cow! I was pretty much bed ridden and started researching how to long Effexor withdraws would last and how to help them. What I read was NOT promising! Most people saying the effects generally last a month or more! I could not live another day like this yet known a month! I read that Fish Oils can help with the withdraw symptoms and luckily in the previous months I had been introduced to an awesome product from my friend
Brittany from The Denny Buzz!
I started taking OmegaPlex and immediately and ordered a supplement called ‘Clear Mood’ and with in 3 days the withdraw symptoms were mostly gone! Crazy exciting! I have now been completely off for a week and I feel normal, great actually! Yay! I am so glad to not be taking things that causes my brain to zapp along with a ton of other awful side effects! I am a new woman and a happy normal mommy again YAY!
